Past event: Visions: Taverner, Part and Adams

Aurora glimpses visions through three great works of the minimalist canon, each inspired by a search for the divine. Cellist Leonard Elschenbroich joins us for The Protecting Veil, a journey of radiant intensity which stands as one of John Tavener’s most widely-cherished pieces. John Adams’ Shaker Loops echoes with the ecstatic dances of North America’s Shaker colonies, whilst Arvo Pärt’s Spiegel im Spiegel (‘Mirror in the Mirror’) hints at infinity through the slow rise and fall of a major scale.
